Monday night in Manhattan, Kansas the Jayhawks fell to the Kansas State Wildcats in overtime, 85-82. This loss is the second in their past four games for Bill Self’s sqaud, but in no way do these losses fall on freshmen star Andrew Wiggins.
Last week, I called for the freshmen to have a more cerebral game that didn’t involve him imposing pre-meditated shots, but rather, to take what the defense gave him. Well in his past two games he has had 16 and 19 points respectively. The freshman is a combined 10-26 from the field in his past two games and 0-7 from three. You would think with shooting stats like that Wiggins would be averaging about 10 points but in fact he is averaging 17.5 in his last two contests thanks to free throws. Wiggins was aggressive for the second straight game last night, going 8-15 from the free throw line and going 7-10 from the stripe two days prior.
